This 100% cotton archival paper offers superior contrast and luminosity. Lab tests show that in combination with our archival pigment inks and UV-coating these prints keep their original quality for over a 100 years. That is why we provide a lifelong guarantee on all our Certified Art Giclee™ prints!
"EA" is short for Épreuve d’Artiste. These are extra prints that are made on behalf of the artist. The prints (maximum 10% of the entire edition) are part of the edition and usually belong to the private collection of an artist. The artist often uses the EA’s as a gift to friends or for special occasions. When an edition has been completely sold out, the EA’s are the only ones left for sale for galleries. EA’s are usually sold at a higher price because they are the last available copies in an edition. EA’s are also labeled as Artist Proofs.
Print on Metal (HDFinish)
Our HDFinish is a new dimension in experiencing photographic art and printed art. HDFinish surpasses older printing and framing methods like Lambdaprints, acrylic glass variants and prints on Dibond. We create our prints on metal through the process of dye sublimation. Using this full color printing technique images are not printed onto the metal surface but inks and pigments are infused directly into specially coated sheets of aluminum under extreme heat.
The result is a scratch resistant artwork with phenomenal colors and sharpness and unparalleled clarity and vibrancy. HDFinish is also archival quality (100 years). We attach a frame to the back of the aluminum panel so that the artwork arrives ready to hang. The result is a light and beautiful artwork that appears to 'float' when hanging on a wall.
